The city is home to a number of major employers including Talk Talk, Ener-G, PZ Cussons, BBC, ITV and BUPA. Key components of the local economy include a large public sector, a strong financial and professional services market and an expanding creative, media and digital sector, underpinned by an experienced manufacturing base.
